POP animator talks Assassin's Creed 2

Sounds like Altair's learning to swim.

Prince of Persia animation director David Wilkinson has spilled the first beans on Assassin's Creed 2.

"He's busy making Altair even more beautiful," he said, speaking of previous POP animation lead Alex Drouin, in an interview with AusGamers.

"Last thing I saw him do was getting Altair to swim.

"I don't know, maybe I wasn't even supposed to say that, I'm not sure," added Wilkinson. Whoopsie!

Ubisoft has openly talked about subsequent Assassin's Creed games before. And the entire ending of the first game rather blatantly points towards follow-ups.

However, US boss Laurent Detoc had said the idea was to build anticipation to an even higher level this time around, presumably as part of a meaty and carefully planned marketing campaign. He might be a bit unhappy at this little slip, then.

Still, nothing compared to actress Kristin Bell, who quite wonderfully outed the premise of Assassin's Creed prior to release.

Assassin's Creed proved to be pretty but a little unspectacular when launched late last year, yet went on to sell over 6 million copies around the world nonetheless.
